Description

If you want to talk about a smooth iconic figure and a smooth iconic wine then these two go hand in hand. We have chosen this rock icon to represent our new Clare Valley 'Icon' Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 for many reasons. He was the king of cool and electrified us with his mastery on the guitar. His deep, rich and smooth blues/rock sounds are legendary and are complimented in the wine with the deep, rich and smooth plum fruit flavours.

This iconic musician’s sound was complex, mysterious and trail blazing; likewise, the flavour of this Clare Valley 'Icon' Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 follows his path and is complex with well-integrated tannins, smoky tobacco with a long finish.

Just like the music of this iconic music man... this iconic Clare Valley 'Icon' Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 will leave you wanting more!!! Enjoy this beautiful wine whilst listening to the awesome sounds of this iconic blues and rick god!

The first vines at this winery were planted in the 1930s in Clare Valley and produce their superb top tier range of wines. As South Australia is phylloxera free, and didn’t suffer the scourge of this vineyard disease which wiped out most of the world’s vineyards, these are some of the older vines still in commercial use in the world.

In 1963, the founders of the winery purchased the Devlin's Pound property near Overland Corner in South Australia and planted the limestone based vineyard to a range of grape varieties, most notably Shiraz, Cabernet and Chardonnay which have all received Gold medals for their premium wine quality.

Comments from Our Wine Buyer: We have been very lucky to get our hands on this little beauty from the Clare Valley. The region is renowned for producing top quality Cabernet. This cabernet just oozes class and distinction with beautiful up front aromas and flavours of dark berry fruit and smoky spice. A very classy Cabernet with good bottle age and oak treatment. My score 94/100 - WACC Gold Medal
